    Congrats, so you did 293 and 294 on the same day?

    You seem to be knocking these out very fast, do you have a lot of experience with Server 2003?

    Good job, good luck on the 298 :)

    Thanks bertieb, yes I did have experience on NT4 and expecially on Server 2003, because I'm the only IT guy in my office (medium size around 100 users) and mainly using Server 2003, so I almost need to find as many resources as I can through Google. I think IT job in Hong Kong is very hard, many medium size Hong Kong company (around 100 users) they only hire one IT staff to handling every IT work, including network, security, database, helpdesk support, it documentation, administration work, etc with just ok salary and benefit. I don't know if US and Europe also like that or not?

    I think it was in response to his second post: http://techexams.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=255057#255057

    That's all I could figure out. We may have more negatives than other occupations, in some respects, but I think we also have a lot more positives that outweigh those negatives.

    Congrats to the OP!

    I think mostly everyone feels the way you do a time or two - under utiliized, underpaid, under appreciated, etc...

    Your right, I dont' think the average person, realizes what an "IT" person does to be succesful in our career paths, but they sure need us when **** hits the fan...

    As most of the others on this forum, I have definite opinions on the value of certs, the value of IT people, and the state of the industry, as well as on the general philosophy of "bleeding edge" careers that require you to stay on top of new information as it comes out. However, in leau of continuing the debate, I think I'll just say this:

    As a common courtesy, It hink it's best that we save our rants for dedicated posts in the Off-Topic, General Certifiation, or IT Jobs / Degrees forums, depending on what the post relates to. Hijacking someone's "I passed" thread is a little off-putting, both to the original poster and to the rest of us who want to congratulate him/her. Creating a dedicated rant-posting will allow people to look at it if they want, but won't force someone who just wants to share some good news and feel good about passing an exam to jump into a debate on the "politics of IT". Not a criticism, persay, but I think it would be a good policy for us to follow in order to stay friends (and professional) on the forum, while preserving the good-natured and high-spirited fun we all like to have when we're here.

    Once again thank you Slowhand for a well thought out and well spoken post. I should have noticed the detour earlier and used my Moderator Magic Mouse to do something about it. So I have split off the hijacked portion and placed it, along with most replies, here:

    So if anyone is newly reading this post and wonders where some of the comments stemmed from that seem a little out of place, go read and post your thoughts there. icon_cool.gif

    And last but not least, I realized i forgot to offer a sincere congratulations to harrists. Good job on the pass harrists! icon_thumright.gif

    So, kind of like how you should have put this in Suggestions / Comments?

    That's right, I went there! ;)
